Muliple moth catch including Acleris hyemana

My first multiple moth catch of the year as a result of the temperature increase, it was 8 degrees when I checked the trap at 7am and feeling much more Spring like.
The catch included the micro moth Acleris hyemana. I catch this in small numbers each year, usually at this time of the year. The moth over-winters as an adult so they are usually quite worn by now. It is a moorland species and probably quite common on Beeley.
Also added Satellite (2), Hebrew Character, and the plume moth Emmelina monodactyla (Common Plume). A further two Common Quaker and March Moth completed the catch.
